Why Transgenders have it roughOk so this is a thing that has me by the neck and i really wanted to speak out about it. Within the L (lesbian), G (gay), B (bisexual or pansexual),or T (transgender)the very last letter has for the longest time been unrepresented. I do not put this in any way of insulting the Gay-Straight alliances that occupy a lot of United States school campuses and other countries like United Kingdom and Germany and Thailand. To a degree these places give rights and accept them enough for anyone in those categories per say to live as normal a life as possible.More Like This
But here is the thing that a lot of people tend to over look because to some of the world it is even more unacceptable then being gay. People that are Transgender have a very hard time even living a normal life because all their childhood or longer, they have had to hide their true selves because they would be seen as freaks. For this article i will show you the side of the woman born as a man.

When I look into the mirror, I see myself, I see my face, my body...me. And I think: Ugly, I am ugly. I am fat, my hair isn't long enough, my skin not clear enough, my eyes the wrong blue, the cold blue, my face too round, my nose too big, my legs too short, my waist too big, my breasts too small. I look into the mirror and I see all these things, and maybe they are true, maybe not.
I have been defined, the definition is ugly. But who defined me. Who gave me this sickness? The inability to see myself as beautiful.
Who said that anorexic models we see on television are beautiful? We see people, and think they are ideal, and then we compare ourselves to them, so no wonder we are 'ugly'.
So what is ugly?
Is it being the wrong shape or size? Is it being different? If so, who is normal?
People keep telling me I am beautiful, but I don't appreciate being lied to. I do not feel beautiful at all, quite the opposite. I could point out all my flaws, and if you chose to ignore the

I ask you not to look away, no matter how much it hurts, your awareness could save a life, a person, don't ever think the effort isn't worth it, you could be changing so much with just a few words, just a few little, tiny moves.
Because it's the small things that matter, and someone in a situation of depression, anger, anxiety, they won't certainly go ahead and tell you just how much you helped them to survive the second it happens, but you'll recieve so much in return, eventually, if you stick around no matter how bitter and sick it gets, you'll be rewarded, you will see someone improve and evolve and become the person they maybe never would have become if you wouldn't have been there.
I know how much just the presence of someone who cares matters, you don't even need to say muc
